Booksigning and new YouTube booksigning video

Happy Monday!

I have a new post up on my YouTube channel.   I attended an annual fall festival and did a quick video on my packing strategy and how I set up my table.  I hope you'll give it a looksie, and if you'd like to see more of my videos, please don't forget to like and subscribe.

The video is at the link below:

I was asked to do a more detailed video on how I pack for booksignings, i.e. the contents of my two rolling carts that I carry to signings.  I'll definitely do that very soon, as well as how I set up my booksigning table.

Thanks for watching!

A few updates

Greeting readers and friends!

I've been away from this blog for far too long.  I started using it as a static website, but then I soon learned that it was becoming....well, static.  Not good!  So here I am to tell you about some updates.

I now have a YouTube channel!  I'm currently posting one video per week.  They're mainly how to writing videos, along with basic talk shops about my routines, practices, and my current book releases and backlog.   If you like the videos, please give them a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel!


I'm almost done with Honor Bound. It's a complicated plot and took me longer than anticipated.  I promise you, friends, it will be worth the wait!

The Indian Books

I've written four historicals with Native American heroes. The first one was Shadow's Promise.
This one was seriously a historical nightmare. This book was hard to write. There is so much history sprinkled in it. I didn't think I'd ever be able to find a happy resolution to all the character's problems.

The second book in the series was Blackbird.
Same world, only a much grittier, almost darker, hero.  Less history but historical all the same. This one came quickly. I wrote the entire first draft in two weeks.

Four Winds came next. A woman set on vengeance and a hero just crazy enough to try to stop her.










Finally, Bounty followed. I thought that would wrap up the series, but I was delighted to hear that readers loved this world I'd created. In fact they were asking for more books in the series.


So I'm obliging. I have Honor Bound coming out this fall, early fall. I hope you'll love it as much as I loved writing it.

Thanks for reading!

A little about me

In case you've just stumbled on this site recently, first of all, hey thanks for dropping by!   I'm Nancy Henderson and I write historical and contemporary romance. 

My historicals are set in Colonial America and mostly have Native American heroes.  I love the Hodenosaunee culture, particularly the Mohawks and often set my historicals in their world. 

My contemporary romances are set in a fictional town called Cold Springs.  Although it's fictional, you've probably been in a town like Cold Springs or maybe you live in one.  You know, filled with everyone who knows everything about everyone elses lives.  And when a newbie comes to the town?  Yeah, you can only imagine.

So that's what I do.  I'm often on Facebook.  Send me a friend request and you can learn about the zaney things my cats do or some of the house projects we're currently working on.

Oh, and I also write humorous cat books.  Yes, all of the stories are true. 




You can also visit my Amazon author page here if you're so inclined.  Read one of my books? I'd love it if you'd drop me a review on Amazon.  Good or bad, tell me what you thought.  I'd love your honest opinion.  Reviews and the best way to show an author your loved their work.  And hey, if you hated it, it kicks me in the pants to do better on the next book! 

Thanks for reading,
Nancy

Patience


I recently hurt my knee. I slipped on wet grass and had to be taken to the emergency room. Yesterday I had an MRI and next Monday they’ll tell me my fate on whether I have torn a ligament and what can be done about it.

Pain has taught me self discipline. That I have to live with less than perfectly tidied up house until my husband can get to it. I could nag him about the dishes not being put away but really what harm is it to leave them in the drainer for awhile? It’s not like they’re going anywhere.

Self discipline leads to patience. I can’t get off these crutches overnight. In fact, I have a feeling we’ll be close friends for quite some time. I can’t help that it takes me twice as long to get to my desk. And I can’t drive somewhere at a whim (which saves me mileage, gas, and possible credit card purchases!)

I’m thankful that I can still work. I didn’t injure my hands. I can still use a keyboard.

So I’m patient, grateful, and I’m saving money. Oh the joys of knee pain!
